    Whoever said San Francisco isn’t a style-centric city certainly doesn’t know the name Camelia Skikos — or better yet, hasn’t seen her latest fall lookbook. No kidding, we could easily see the Romanian-born designer’s pieces cat-walked down a runway, right along other big shots at fashion week. And with a resume once bearing a head designer title at Levis, it's only natural that Skikos knows how to churn out sleek looks like nobody’s business.

    For her third eponymous collection, Skikos took inspiration from Berlin buildings and created architectural, A-line gowns, streamlined body-con dresses, and clean-cut coats. All of the pieces are made of wool and leather — for those looking to achieve a sophisticated-meets-edgy sartorial persona.

    The collection isn’t available for purchase just yet, but for now, you can ogle our favorite fiery orange, teal, cream, and black looks with just a click of the mouse. A word of caution: Feelings of serious fashion cravings is an unavoidable side effect when peeping through.
